The Rock Garden of Malampuzha is the first of its kind in Kerala and the second rock garden in India. Located in close to Malampuzha Dam and Gardens, this spot attracts visitors with its uniqueness. This impressive collection of artwork is conceived and designed by renowned sculptor and Padma Shree laureate Neck Chand Saini. Another creation of Neck Chand, India’s first rock garden located in Chandigarh, has gained recognition from all over the world.
What makes this garden distinct is the fact that the artifacts displayed here are made of waste materials such as used plastic bottles and cans, bangle pieces, electricity fuse carriers, power insulators, melamine dishware, broken tiles and tins. Winding mountain ranges of the Western Ghats in the surroundings add to the scenic beauty of this garden.
Functioning from the year of 1996, this place is under the administration of the District Tourism Promotion Council. This place, an ideal spot for art lovers, is bound to impress the visitors with its originality and creativity.
